An act of solidarity with the non-profit organization the artists who signed the petition recognize that freedom is the basis for music and reproductive rights.
“Our bodies are our own — if they are not, we cannot be truly free or equal. Across the country, some politicians are trying to make decisions about our bodies for us. We won’t let the abortion bans sweeping the country put our lives and futures at risk, and we won’t be silenced while our fundamental right to control our bodies is taken away.” says Planned Parenthood on the campaign’s homepage.
